I'm sorry but this album isn't ambient enough for me, it does have some rely interesting elements but the instrumental usage doesn't make it ambient, more some kind of "new weird American music" or "neo-folk" if you want dark ambient look for the Swedish label cold meat industry instead.

doe this music ISN'T bad, just not dark ambient.

always one to shy away from popularity the high batting average of this release wrote chapters of steriotype before i listened. the product blows all this away. dark, crazy and so well manufactured.

discovered this album from archive.orgâÃÂÃÂs most downloaded album section and this album is currently ranked second with close to 50 thousand downloads.

This is not a strictly electronic album. One can hear some acoustic instruments being used in the album, in fact rather abundantly. This album sounds rather industrial and yet not as fast as most industrial rock. The sound is rather ambient and is definitely dark.

A lot of samples are being used and the most of them are very heavily processed to suit the dark theme of the album. Plenty of distorted speech, jumbled guitar tracks, deep sounding sound scape, slow beats are what this album is made up of. Being a theme album, this release is best listened throughout.

Notable tracks:

* StalinâÃÂÃÂs Will
* Meltdown
* Our Powers are Limitless

Subject: Splendid!! Pinhead's favourite Cure album, only better!!!
This is really something! There's always an inbuilt assumption that material given away is likely to be less accomplished: it might be more original but it's not likely to exceed in quality those items which are published in the conventional way.... well HERE IS ONE GREAT EXAMPLE OF HOW COMPLETELY UNTRUE THAT IS!!!!
Brainsaw are FULL of character and personality, the tunes ROCK, the mixing is just gritty enough to make it wonderful as it is, and the soundworld is halfway between Freddy Krueger and Therapy?...

It's black, it's nasty, and I LOVE IT!!!!! Long live Brainsaw!!!!!
